Attached is a translation of a letter from Leon (one of our most successful graduates) to his scholarship sponsor, which, as it happens, is now all of us who support the project, since Leon’s original college scholarship sponsor wasn’t able to continue with the $550/year scholarship. You’ll agree it was certainly a good investment. I’ve done an article about it for our next newsletter.
Nagarote, Leon, To My Godfather Dear Sponsor: The reason for this letter is to share with you something of my life, I must say that I'm fine, I still live in the neighborhood “Sonrisa de Dios” (God’s Smile)of this City with all my family, I have spent the most enjoyable and entertaining moments in recent years .
I want to tell you that my participation in the Norwalk-Nagarote project has been very gratifying for me and for all project participants, in the project have learned a lot and develop values that are now part of our attitude.
As a personal note, I am very grateful to all who make this project possible and a reality. Here in Nagarote things have not changed, for example, most young people who were on the project for those years are still participating in the project.
About my life, as you know, I am in college, studying in the National Engineering University in Managua. I am currently enrolled in the fourth year of the career of Systems Engineering. Another thing that has not changed my personality:
I am still the same humble young boy with big dreams and goals, with a vision of welfare and prosperity, with a strong will to help those who I could and the way I would be able. And of course the diligent student who always wants to learn a lot. Years ago I imagined myself getting ready for my professional life, I am in that moment, thank God for giving me enough life, thank my parents for giving me a complete support, and of course thanks to you.
I look forward to hearing from you very soon and I hope to see you in the future. I close this letter wishing that God fulfill you with blessings.
